Jump is partnering with Uber to create Uber bikes. Residents in San Francisco can now rent a Jump bike with the power of the Uber app. The costumer can find a bike near you and press a button to unlock it. They are starting in San Francisco and if everything goes well it might move on to other areas. The bikes are motorized giving more power as you pedal to help climbing up hills or traveling long distances easier. The Jump bikes also have a built-in lock so when you are done biking the costumer can lock it anywhere such as a street sign. Ford runs a bike sharing system, GoBikes, but all of these bike have to be docked while Uber bikes can lock almost anywhere.

The bikes will cost $2 for every 30 minutes you use your bike. Customers will pay a per minutes fee after that. In the Uber app customers may be able to look through the app and it will show what bikes are closest to you allowing them to reserve the bike. Ryan Rzepecki says, “Together with Uber, I firmly believe we can make a more significant impact on the world and shift millions of trips from cars to bikes.”
